Ordained to the Holy Priesthood 13 June 2009
at the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, Providence, Rhode Island

Story in the Rhode Island Catholic, issue 11 June 2009 (thus the references to "Deacon Marcello", which he then was).

It turns out that he was not only connected with Holy Name, but with another former parish of mine, Precious Blood in Woonsocket, RI. His spiritual advisor was my boss during most of my stay at Precious Blood, the late Fr. Rene Gagne.

Fr. Marcello's First Mass is tomorrow at 9 AM at Holy Name of Jesus Church, Providence, RI. I wish I could have attended, but my daughter is in a softball tournament - games today and tomorrow, so I'll have to attend a 5 PM Sunday afternoon Mass up in Cumberland. (Since I'll be transporting my mom, the church won't be far from her.)

Kudos to Fr. Marcello - I think you'll make a great HOLY priest!
